Some Constants in Life

How can I be sure, in a world that’s constantly changing?


Some things in life are constant. Others are constantly changing. Here are a few that never seem to change. Add your constants in the comments, if you like.

The drip of the leaky faucet when you’re trying to sleep. Maddening.

Fingernails growing. Even after you die.

The speed of light. Einstein did the math, so we don’t have to (phew).

Your supermarket line is the slowest. Even if you change lines.

Sunrises. Even when it’s cloudy.

The apple you pick from the tree will have the worm. Stupid worms.

Gravity. I wonder if Newton’s apple had a worm.

Sunsets. See Sunrises, above.

The infinite nature of Pi (π). Pie, on the other hand, is very finite.

Your lane in the traffic jam is the one that’s blocked. See supermarket line above.

Change. To some, it’s the only constant.

A mother’s love. Thanks Mom.
